GeForce 8500 high temps

Specs: Windows XP
My graphic card's temp is 78c idle and when playing games it goes around 105-110 and i get a message "Warning!GPU temperature too high.Check your fan and heatsinks".The card has a fan and a heatsink.I tried cleaning it up and increasing fan speed with RivaTuner but that didn't help.I've used this card for about a year and haven't had this problem until now.This winter I installed new drivers and maybe thats the reason i get the message just now.My comp used to restart sometimes while i played COD 4 for long time.CPU temp is abotu 20c and HDD is running at 42c.What should i do? Thanks in advance.

Where are you getting these temps from? 20C (68F) for the CPU is very low...roughly room temp. Either you have some form of extreme cooling for the CPU or the room you have the PC in is fairly cold. If neither is correct, I suspect the temp monitoring software is inaccurate.

Sorry that was temperature of core1...The processor temp is ~45degrees.I use Everest to monitor the temps but doublechecked on CPU with RivaTuner
